Apricot and rosemary marmelade

A little break from Italy and macaron recipes. This time I enjoy summer, its fruits and colors festival to do some marmelade and experiment unexpected flavors (at least for me). Doing a foodblog is a little challenge: you have to write a lot (not my case ;-)) but at least you always have to consider what you are going to cook or to bake. So you read you pay more attention of what’s going on on the » blogosphere » and you experiment. Example this recipe, an apricot marmelade is quite classical but add it some rosemary! the taste is just surprising, sweetness of the fruits and freshness from the rosemary.

We tried it this morning on some petit pain au lait (small rounded brioche…a recipe that I will share soon)
